Two small champs having a ball last winter! Giving me a lesson in life: jumping IS fun!





Getting motivated, making changes, taking responsibility and control!

Here I go again!

Let's just say that this isn't the first time I am re-starting this, so will be a little more humble. I just read 'Think Like A Thin Person' and yes, it is a bit arrogant and OTT, but I really, really like the way she talks about control. It starts with me. Here I go again, again. BTW, my last time I got points was like two years ago. Holy guacamole! Itís sad and motivating at the same time.

Fitness Minutes: 7,179

My Goals:
Main goal is to lose weight and become more active

My Program:
I would like to figure out how to change out bad habits with good ones.

Have started to ride my bike a little (and am getting back into yoga). This should help me incorporate outdoor activities as part of every day. My main focus is to bike to/from work a couple times a week, about 15 km.

Personal Information:
Crossed the 50 mark this year. Half a century in and am pleased to say that my marriage is good, kids are going to college (whew), job is fine, the dogs are still peppy and just this weight thing that continues to confound me.

Other Information:
Appreciate reading other people's stories. Thanks for being so inspirational!

It seems to go in bursts! I hadn't been to one in years it feels like and then three this summer and there's another (in Disneyland!) in March. ...And then ours... once we plan it - hahahah! We're thinking October next year, but I'm not going to set a date until we get the venue sorted. First things first!

I'd never bought new appliances before, but it sure did feel nice... after the initial shock from spending so much money! I can't wait until the day we can redo the rest of the kitchen. Our kitchen is so very dated (and worn... and tacky). One thing at a time though :)

Oh, I'm sorry to hear about your back. How upsetting! And back injuries can take so long to heal, too...

New for me? Well, the fiance and I bought a washer and dryer and dishwasher last week. They're getting delivered soon. I'm pretty excited. There's just something about having laundry at home that makes it SO much easier.

Other than that, we went to my parents' cabin last weekend to coincide with one of my cousin's vacations and us and her and her boyfriend went on a pretty epic hike.

This weekend we have another wedding to go to. That's three this summer! I'm sure it will be a blast and the reception is at a golf course only a few blocks away from my parents' home so we'll be able to stumble back to them easily in the wee hours of the morning.

Be nice to your back, hun :)

Glad you are on the mend.
What kind of doggiue are you going to get? Small is so nice.
How are you doing food wise? Do you have a goal in mind?
Take care and have a great week ahead.
